CHAPTER VIII.

P. 363. Connection of the Moduli E, C, and K. —

Consider a cube A Y B x, Fig. 916, under the action of pure shear
stress and strain, and let Y move to y under shear. Then x Y
extends to xjy under^tension (see pp. 366 and 755). But XY, the
original length « Jz, and x z = ^2, and vy is 8S.

zy =  -L

In like manner 8C = ^ £s, and a pure shear strain in one
direction consists of two direct strains, compressive and tensile, each
having a value half the shear strain,

or    5C s= 5t — •§• £s

But it has already been proved at pp.' 366 and 755 that two
stresses, compressive and tensile, of equal intensity, cause a third
stress in shear of the same intensity,

or   /c == /t = /s

Still considering the inch cube,

LetM = ^ (Poisson's ratio)        and let ~ =* a
